Simplify the process of transferring your TrueNAS VM disk with these two easy steps. Follow this quick tutorial to learn how to move your TrueNAS VM disk from one pool to another in no time.
Bash:
# zfs snapshot -r pool/dataset/VMname-rnd0m@relocate

Then use the following command to move it to the new pool:
Bash:
# zfs send pool/dataset/VMname-rnd0m@relocate | zfs receive -v newpool/newdataset/VMname-rnd0m
receiving full stream of pool/dataset/VMname-rnd0m@relocate into newpool/newdataset/VMname-rnd0m@relocate
received 10.2G stream in 56 seconds (186M/sec)

Hint: You can also put a new zvol name by putting the new name on the zfs receive command; just make sure that the name doesn't currently exist.
